  • IPhone 5 Mod Kit for iPhone 4/4S Surfaces



    A new mod lets current iPhone 4 and 4S owners enjoy the brushed-aluminum aesthetic expected to be a staple of the iPhone 5.

    The “iPhone 5 conversion mod kit” is a simple backplate mod kit based on the leaked iPhone 5 backplate photos. According to the seller the mod kit is composed of a “Glass-Like Acrylic and features a “Camera Glass Lens of the same Quality as Original iPhone Back Panel.” The kit comes with the necessary Phillips and Pentalobe screwdrivers.

    The quality is impossible to vouch for, but at $30 it isn’t a huge hit to the wallet if the product turns out to be terrible. Judging from the pictures and video the look of the iPhone 5 does translate decent enough to the iPhone 4/4S, but the fact the mod isn’t brushed aluminum does detract from the allure. Although it likely does keep the price down.

    This is likely the first of many iPhone 5 Mod Kits for existing iPhone 4/4S users. My advice is to hold out and see what other offerings show up.

      Wow... $30? It looks like they slapped on a $1 screen protector on the back.

      Glimmered by the Copertino vampire fruit bats once more. If this mod showed up 5 month ago prior to all the iP5 leaks everyone would have laughed at its ridiculous two-toned nature and comments on how it ruins the all glass ascetic of the iP4/4s would fly left and right. But because the iP5 bla, bla, bla fill in the blanks. Well I happen to sport a pair of garlic goggles and see it for what it is and that is PURE OVER PRICED UGLINESS!

      PS Logo light mod kit (same price mind you) FTW!!

      A new iPhone 4 back panel goes for a penny on Amazon. Got mine a few weeks ago and I must say, the lens cover and flash diffuser are far superior to Apple's stock version.

      The phone hasn't even come out yet and a mod kit for a supposed design is already released?

      I hope the new iphone looks like the motorola pebl just to screw these guys.

      They been having a brushed aluminum back for the iPhone 4/4s for awhile now. Different colors as well. Doesn't look exactly like the supposed ip5 back but same concept. Nothing new really.

      Just about everything from the phone except the core components (memory/camera/etc) have leaked in enough capacity just like years past to give us a pretty darn close idea of what the phone will be like on the outside.

      I already have had a real brushed aluminum back on my iPhone 4 for a year and a half! My shiny glass one will go back on if I sell it. :-)
